INTRODUCTION, 



It may not be improper to state that this Brief Genealogy of 
the Whipple family who settled in Rhode Island, has been the 
result of at least twenty-five years of inquiry and labor, and the 
travel of several hundred miles, amidst the cares and other duties. 
of life. 

Have visited the Genealogical and Historical Libraries at 
Boston, the Athenaeum and Mechanics' Libraries of Providence. 
Have visited many families , and copied from their records and 
had many pleasant interviews with aged and intelligent persons, 
from whom I have obtained much information. It was not my 
intention, when I first commenced seaichmg for this record, to 
have published it, but finding many of the connections very much 
interested, as well as myself, I felt it a duty to publish what I 
had collected, so that they might know something of their an- 
cestors and also what I had gathered might not be lost. This 
Genealogy, will, we presume, answer the questions which have 
been asked by many earnest enquirers, in every family circle, 
who inherit the name, " Who was the first Whipple and where 
did he settle ? " A question, we believe, that has never been an- 
swered by any published genealogy, showing the origin of the 
families that settled in R. I., before this. A more extensive, 
and perhaps a more acceptable genealogy might be gathered 
and published than this, could a person have the time to devote 
to it, and the patience to endure so laborious a task. Now, 
trusting that what I here present, will, in some measure, be sat- 
isfactory, I hope it may be found worthy of being preserved and 
handed down to future generations. If so, the author will re- 
gard his exertions as not without reward.

Errata 



Since the publication of this Geneaogy the author, by further 
inquiry has found some mistakes made by copying from records 
which were incorrect. 

David Whipple, mentioned on page 5 also on page 59, ( Second 
Part) was not brother to John and Matthew who settled at Ipswich, 
Mass., as supposed on page 5. He was the son or John who settled 
at Providence, R. I. (See page 38.) He married Hannah Tower. 

The statement on page 49 that David Whipple had a son Jeremiah, 
born 1655. who married a Shippee, is not correct. He had no son 
born at that date. He had a son Jeremiah born 1684, who married 
a Shippee. 

Samuel Whipple, mentioned on page 55, (Second Part) was son of 
John Whipple, No. 1. His Wife's name was Mary as mentioned in 
his will on page 56. He had two sons, Samuel and Thomas, and two 
daughters, Abigail and Hope. The family recorded on page 13 as 
his, is the family of his son Samuel who married Elizabeth Eddy. He 
settled near Stoningfon, Connecticut. 

John Whipple, page 51, born 1716, was son of William Whipple, 
son of David Whipple who married Hannah Tower. 

William Whipple, page 58, was not the son of David, No, 7, as 
there recorded. It is not vet known who his father was.

GENEALOGY 



MIS TOUT. 




'E learn that, among the first settlers of New England, 
there were several by the name of Whipple. There 
were Matthew and John, two brothers, who settled at 
Ipswich, Mass., about the year 1635, whose genealogy was 
published by Oliver M. Whipple, of Lowell, one of their descend- 
ants, in 1851. 

There were also John, Samuel, David and Elezer, who settled 
in Rhode Island. John and Samuel settled at Providence town. 
David settled in the town of Cumberland,* and was perhaps 

See O, M Whipple Genealogy page 12 

brother to Matthew and John, who settled a Ipswich. Some 
of the descendants of David, are living in that town and vicini- 
ty. Elezer settled at Warwick, and his descendants are called 
the Warwick Whipples. 

I have not been able to learn that these four that settled in 
Rhode Island were any related to each other. The descendants 
from these six families, can be fonnd in all the New England 
and many of the Western States, and in some localites are quite 
numerous. It is stated in Mr James Savages' Genealogical 
Dictionary, which gives a record of the first, second, and third 
generations of the first settlers of New England, that John 
Whipple who settled at Providence, is called John Provide 
and John Whipple who settled at Ipswich, is called John Ip- 
swich, to distinguish one from the other. 



EXPLANATION. 

It will be seen that this genealogy is divided into two Parts 
-Part First and Part Second. 



6 



THE WHIPPLE GENEALOGY. 



Part First is the genealogy of the male descendants of John 
Whipple, the first of this name who settled in New England, 
•f and the first who settled in Rhode Island. The male members 
j c of his descendants are all numbered, so that any one can trace 
J< out their pedigree, or line of descent. 



FOREXAMPLE. 

Benjamin Whipple, No. 24, was son of Benjamin Whipple 
No. 20. who was son of Benj. Whipple, No. 6, and he was the 
son of John Whipple, the first, who settled at Providence town 
in 1659. / 

Part Second will give a brief account of Samuel, David and 
Elezer that settled in Rhode Island. 



PART FIRST, 



THE GENEALOGY OF CAPT. JOHN WHIPPLE, [WHO 
SETTLED AT PROVIDENCE, R. I.,] FOR OVER TWO HUN- 
DRED AND FORTY YEARS. 

John Whipple, No. 1, one of the early settlers at Providence, 
Rhode Island, was born in England about the year 1616' or 
1*1, and died May 16th. 1685; aged about 68 years. 

What part of England he came from is not known. History 
states, that in 1630, (or there about) there were about fifteen 
hundred persons landed in Boston from England and it is very 
dent that he came about that time. 

Savage's Genealogical Dictionary, states that John (Provi- 
dence) Whipple, was in Dorchester as early a^ 1632, in service 
to Israel Stoughton; and was then, perhaps, not over fifteen 
years of age. He received a grant of land at Dorchester Neck, 
in 163?. 



THE WHIPPLE GENEALOGY. 



He married his wife, Sarah, at Dorchester, about the year 
1639 — 40. His wife was born at Dorchester, about the year 
1624, and died at Providence town, 1666; aged about 42 years. 
She could not have been over sixteen years of age when married. 
What her name was beside Sarah, we have no knowledge. Mr. 
Whipple and his wife, united with a church at Dorchester, in 
1641. He was a house carpenter by trade, and owned a house, 
and forty or fifty acres of land, near (what is now called) Ne- 
ponset village. lie lived at Dorchester about eighteen years, 
and during this time there were born unto him six sons and two 
daughters. 

He sold his house and land to James Minot in 1658, and then 
removed to Rhode Island the same year, or the year after, and 
settled at Providence, with all his family; and received appro- 
priation July 29th., 1659. He had two sons and one daughter 
born at Providence, having in all eleven children; eight sons and 
three daughters. 

The house in which he lived and died, was built most likely 
by himself, as he was a carpenter by trade. The house stood 
on the east side of the river, a little north of Star street, be- 
tween North Main, and (what is now) Benefit street. Mr. 
Dexter Thurber, (a very worthy gentleman, and citizen of Prov- 
idence, who is now (1871) in the nintieth year of his age,) says 
this house was standing when he was a boy. It was a large 
two-story house, having a large stone chimney at one end, and 
on the west side of the house there were steps leading up to it 
from North Main Street. This house was standing as late as 
about TO years ago, according as stated by som3 other of the 
oldest inhabitants, now living at this date; and was called the 
John Whipple house. He received a grant of and in 1660, at 
Louisquisset. (See page 12.) 

He also owned land in several other places a? is mentioned in 
his will. In 1666 he took the oath of allegiance to King Charles 
the second, with his oldost son, John. He was a member of 
the town council of Providence in 1669. (See "Annals of Prov- 
idence/ 7 page 664.) He received a license ;o keep a public

house in 1674 ; at which place the town elections were some- 
times held. (See Providence Records.) In the year 1615 
John Whipple was one among about twenty five others who 
voted at a town meeting, to stay at Providence instead of going 
Newport, in the time of King Phillip's war, a sit was a safer 
place. The most of the inhabitants of the town, vailed them- 
selves of the offer made to them by their friends at Newport, 
and the town was nearly deserted. In about one year from this 
time, in 1676, the town of Providence was attacked by the In- 
dians. Many houses were burnt, and much damage done to 
those who stayed at Providence. It is evident that Mr. Whip- 
ple had to bear his part of the calamity, with the re.st. Mr. 
Whipple lived in Providence about twenty six years from the 
time he first came in 1658 or 9, up to the time of his death. 
During all of this period he experienced many hardships and 
privations, such as attend the first settlers of a new country. 
But among the many losses he had to meet, there could be none 
greater than the loss of his wife, who died in 1666, after living 
only about seven years with him, after they first came to Provi- 
dence, leaving in his care a family of several small children, the 
youngest probably an infant. Mr. Whipple died May 16th, 
16S5. He and his wife were buried near his house, in a garden 
lot. But after several years they, and several others of his fam- 
ily were taken up and buried at the North Burying Place, 'and 
their tombstones can be seen thereat this date, (1873.)

* The WILL of Capt. John Whipple . Sen. 

Be it known unto all persons to whom this may come, that I, 
JOHN WHIPPLE, of the town of Providence, in the Colony of R. I. 
and Providence Plantations, in New England, (Sen.) being in good 
measure of health, and in perfect memory, upon consideration of

THE SEVEN MILE LINE. 

The seven mile line is the easterly line of the town of Scituate, 
Glocester, and Burrilville. and westerly line of the towns of Cranston, 
Johnston and Smithfield, beginning at South East corner of the town 
of Scituate and from thence running a northerly course to the line of 
Massachusetts ; and is said to be seven miles west of Fox Point: and 
is called the Seven Mile Line. 

Louisquisset or Louquisset is an Indian name of a place or brook 
in the town of Smithfield, about four miles West from Pawtucket, 
and easterly from the Lime Rock village. (See Annals of Providence 
Page 568. 



I, Thomas Arnold, and John Arnold, the 27th day of May, in 
the year of 1685, did upon these solemn engagements declare that 
they are witnesses unto the above will, and as these names are there 
written they do own it to be their hand. 

Shadrack Manton, the 27th. day of May, in the year 16?5, did in 
the presence ot the Magistrates and. the rest of the Council, full and 
truly declare that he is witness to the above Will, and that he with 
his own hand wrote his name thereunto, as,

Arthur Fenner, Assistant. 



Joseph Whipple did upon the 27th day of May, 1685, in the pres- 
ence of the Council, as he is Executor to the Testator, upon his sol- 
emn engagement testify and declare that this is the last Will and 
Testament of his deceased father as ever yet perfected as he know- 
eth of ; and that he, when he made it, was of sound mind, and of a 
good memory. — 

Arthur Fenner, X A ^„ fariU

Taken before us, 



On the back side of this said Will, it is endorsed as follows : — 
Thomas Olney, Town Clerk of Providence, in the Colony of Rhode 
Island, and Providence Plantations, in New England, aged 53 years 
or therabouts, testiiieth that on the sixteenth day of this instant 
(May) John Whipple [Sen.,] of the aforesaid town of Providence, 
sent for to speak with him. 
• 

This deponent saith he immediately went to him. The said John 
Whipple [Sen.] Jien showed him this paper, and the writing which 
on the o her side of this said paper is written, desiring this deponent 
to peruse it. This deponent saith he did well peruse it; and having 
well perused it, he asked the said John Whipple what his mind was 
concerning the land which he in the said writing had disposed of to 
his several sons; whether or no he did intend by that writing or Will 
that the said land should be unto his said sons, their heirs and assigns 
forever; or only unto his said sons for term of life? He immediately 
made this answer. That however it was not worded in the said 
writing, yet his mind and will was that his sons, each one of them, 



12 



THE WHIPPLE GENEALOGY. 



should have said house and rights which he in the said writing unto 
each one of them had disposed, to be unto them, their heirs and as- 
signs forever, to dispose the same or any part thereof, at any time as 
they see cause; and that the same was omitted to be inserted.' 

That his son Jonathan should have one of his rights of land and 
common, on the west side of the ''seven mile line," to be unto him, 
his heirs, and assigns forever; and that that was his mind when the 
said Will was written. However it was omitted in part by the scribe 
of the said Will. There was an exception made only of thirty acres 
of land to be his son John's, by him formerly given. That he owned 
to be a mistake; and that the exception must be of sixty acres, which 
formerly by deed of gift he had given to his son John Whipple; and 
all the remainder of his said farm lying about Louquis^et should be 
divided equally between his said three sons, [namely J Samuel, Ele- 
zer, and William. This, saith this deponent, is truth ; and he took it 
immediately from the Said John Whipple's mouth and worded it 
down. And also that whereas the said Will expresseth a quarter 
part of a right of common to ^ach of his three sons, [namely") Samuel, 
Elezer and William ; he said his meaning: was and will, that it 
should be so far westward as the "seven mile line," and no farther. 
And that the said John Whipple was then, when he did declare this, 
of a sound mind and perfect memory. 

May 27th., 1685. 

Upon oath taken before us, — 

Arthur Fenner, Assistant. 
Joseph Jencks, " 

The Will on the other side of this paper was at our Council Meet- 
ing, May 27th 1685, by us, the Town Council of Providence examin- 
ed, and is by us, the said Council approved;

his one hundredth year, told me when a young man, he with several others kept a 
pack of hounds, with which they would at times divert themselves in a fox-chase At 
one time they followed one most all day. At evening they holed him, then made a 
fire. at the mouth of the hole in order to keep him in during the night. They came 
with tools for digging and found him suffocated, as they supposed. They took him 
out, handed him from one to the other, with every appearance of bei'g dead. So they 
threw him on the ground, when he instantly took to his toes and gave them another 
day's chase.

COLONEL JOSEPH WHIPPLE. 

Colonel Joseph Whipple, No. 8, (the seventh son of Captain 
John Whipple No. 1, of Providence,) was born in Providence 
in 1662, and died in Providence the 28th of August, 1746, aged 
84 years. He was buried in the North Burying Place in Provi- 
dence. He married Alice Smith of Providence, May 20th, 1681. 
She was born at Providence in 1654, and died in 1731 aged 
75 years. He took the oath of allegiance to King Charles the 
Second, in May 1682, with his brother Jonathan. He was 
Colonel of the Providence Militia^ which gave him the name of 
Colonel Joseph. He was one of the Town Coun oilmen of 
Providence, for twelve years ; most of the time from 1715 1o 
172?; and Representative to the General iissembly for nineteen 
\ ears, within the time from 1698 to 1728. In 1723, he gave 
one hundred pounds towards building an Episcopal Church on 
North Main street, in Providence, it being the largest amount 
given by any one of those who contributed for its erection. He 
gave the use of a lot of land at the north end of Benefit street 
to build a school house on, and it was called Whipple Hall. It 
appears that Mr. Whipple took a great interest in the the town 
and State affairs, for their growth, education and prosperity. 
And it is safe to conclude that he was a very popular man and 
much respected by his townsmen.

JOHN WHIPPLE. 

John Whipple, No. 171, (son of Colonel Joseph Whipple No. 
8, the seventh son of Captain John Whipple, who settled at the 
town of Providence,) was born at Providence, May 28th, 1685. 
Moses Brown says he was a noted bone setter and amilitary 
captain. He lived nearly opposite Thurber's shop on North Main 
street, Providence, probably in the same house where his grand- 
father first settled. In his life time he gave the Episcopal 
Church their Burial Ground, He died in 1769 aged 84 years. 
I have found nothing of his family except what is mentioned by 
Moses Brown, who said he had a son Joseph. 



JOSEPH WHIPPLE. 

Joseph Whipple, (son of John Whipple No. 171, the noted 
bone setter,) was born in 1734. He was educated at Cambridge 
College, and then settled on a farm in Smithfield, R. I. He mar- 
ried Sarah Mowry. He died in 1816, aged 82 years. His 
wife died April 20th, 1820, aged 85 years.

JOSEPH WHIPPLE. 

Joseph Whipple No. 173 (son of Colonel Joseph Whipple No. 
8, of Providence,) was born at Providence, Dec. 30th, 1687. 
He settled at Newport, R. I. He maided Sarah Redwood and 
had one daughter, who married a Temple. He was Deputy 
Governor of Rhode Island in 1743-44-46-51, until Nov. 2d ; 
he then resigned his office of Deputy Governor on account of be- 



THE WHIPPLE GENEALOGY. 41 

coming insolvent. He was extensively concerned in the mer- 
cantile operation, and the ruinous system of paper money was 
working" its ruinous results. Among the victims of the crash 
that had now come upon the colony, was Mr. Whipple, He 
surrendered alibis property to the use of his creditors, and re- 
ceived the benefit of a special act of insolvency. The terms of 
his petition are pathetic; such, as under the circumstances and 
in an age when failures were almost unknown to an honest and 
honorable man in his position might well employ. When the 
next Assembly met at South Kingstown, Nov. 2d, 1751, Mr. 
Whipple resigned his office as Deputy Governor. 
(The foregoing was taken from the history of Ehode Island. 



WILLIAM WHIFFLE.

college teacher. He completed his professional studies in 



THE WHIPPLE GENEALOGY. 43 

Providence with Hon. Samuel W. Bridgham, B. U., 1T94, and 
was admitted to the Rhode Island bar in 1805. Rising rapidly 
he very early in life gained a distinguished reputation especi il- 
ly as an eloquent advocate. His mind was eminently fitted for 
forensic oratory, and his career at the bar was nearly cooeval 
with the rise of the great manufacturing interests of Rhode 
Island. In the new litigation respecting water privileges to 
v. hich these gave rise lie bore a very prominent part, and was en- 
gaged on one side or the other along with the most eminent 
'Counsel of New England in nearly every important suit relating 
to them , many of which were finally decided only by the 
Supreme Court of the United States. He was also frequently 
employed by the manufacturers of Rhode Island to represent 
their interests before committees of Congress. Though inti- 
mately associated with men in public life in Washington, and 
also largely conversant with the inner machinery of national 
affairs, he always manifested an aversion to public station. He 
regarded it, or perhaps the means by which it is attained, as in 
some sense incompatible with that personal independence which 
he prized most highly He often represented the people of Provi- 
dence in the General Assembly; but though repeatedly urged 
he was never willing to be a candidate for political office. He 
once received the nomination of the whig party in the Legislature 
for the Senate of the United States, but was not elected; a re- 
sult with which he always professed himself to be entirely satis- 
fied. His mind was comprehensive and vigorous, clear in its 
perceptions and firm in its grasp of every subject to which it 
was directed; and his oratory was singularly persuasive. He 
wielded extraordinary power over assemblies of people and 
several of the 'Speeches which he delivered to the assembled 
citizens on important public questions have become historic in 
the annals of the State, He continued in the professional prac- 
tice in the courts of the State and the United States forty-five 
years, and retired from the bar in 1850. Mr. Whipple wrote 
frequently and with great force, for the press on the public 
questions of the times. Several of his arguments in the 
Supreme Court of the United States, and also of his political 
addresses, have been published; and those with a Fourth of 
July oration delivered in 1838, a discourse on the life and ser- 



44

vices of Mr. Webster, and a pamphlet on the laws of usury in 
reply to Jeremy Bentham, are the only publications that bear 
his name. He spent the last four or five years of his life at his 
country residence in Warwick. He received the honorary 
degree of Doctor of Laws in 1844, a well merited recognition of 
his eminent forensic abilities and fame. He married in 1809 
Maria, daughter of Dr. William Bowen, of Providence, who died 
in 1836; and in 1839, Ellen DeWolf, daughter of Jotham Post, 
of New York,

sides, by the river called the West river, and on the north by his own 
lands, which evidently was the land that was given to him by his 
father, by will, where he then lived. (See will of John Whipple the 
first.) Jonathan Whipple at his decease gave his land or farm to 
two sons, viz: Jonathan and Thomas, to be equally divided between 
them. (See Providence Records.) This farm or land is situated in 
what is now the town of North Providence, a little north of the 
Waunscot factory, and has been retained in the name ever since the 
first settlement of the country. At this place there has been four

*The reason for stating that William Whipple was the son of David 
Whipple, No. 7, is a conclusion drawn from the folowing facts: His 
discendants claim no connection to David Whipple who settled in 
Cumberland, on the Blackstone farm. At the time that this William 
Whipple's first child was born in (1715,) there was but two William 
Whipples in the Colony of Rhode Island, viz: William Whipple No. 
5, son of John (No. 1,) and William Whipple, No. (170,) son of David 
No. 7. William Whipple, son of John was kffar advanced in age to 
be married at that date, and have a family the oldest born 1715. There 
is no record or evidence that he was ever married or had a family. 
From these facts we are forced to conclude that William Whipple, 
the father oi the large family, was the son of David No 7, as above 
stated.

ABBAHAM WHIPPLE 

Com. Abraham Whipple, was born Sept. 26 1*733, at Provi- 
dence R. I. Who his father was, I have not been able to 
learn. He married Sarah Hopkins, sister to Gov. Stephen, 
and Com. Eseck Hopkins. He had two daughters : one 
married Col. E. Sprout, and the other married Dr. Corn- 
stock of Smithfield. He went to sea at a very early age, 
and when a young man he was appointed Captain of a mer- 
chant vessel in the West India trade. In the old French war 
he made himself very conspicuous as a bold active privateer. 
He took an early stand against the encroachments of the 
British Government upon the provincial rights ; and in 1*775 
was appointed Commodore, aud had the command of two 
armed vessels, fitted out by Rhode Island. During the Rev- 
olutionary War he was a brave officer, and distinguished 
himself in performing many bold and daring deeds. His 
portrait as Commodore, in full uniform, can be seen in one 
of the rooms of the R. I. Historical Society at Providence. 
After the war was over he settled in the town of Cranston R. I. 
near A. & W. Sprague's Print Works. At this place here- 
sided until 1*796. when he and the rest of his family joined an 
emigration company and removed to the state of Ohio and 
settled near Marielta, and followed farming the rest of his 
day. He died May 29th 1809 aged 85 years.

SAMUEL WHIPPLE. 

*Samuel Whipple, Sen., one of the early settlers of Provi- 
dence town was, most probably an Englishman by birth, as the 
name is an English name. At what time he came to 
this country is not known. It appears by his Will that he was 
a man of considerable wealth, and had several children. It is 
probable that he brought all of his family with him when he 
came to this country. His oldest son, Samuel, was called an 
alien in some business transaction in the town where he settled. 
Samuel Whipple, Sen., died in a house on Abbot's Lane, near 
North Main street, in Providence. The house is called the 
Abbot house, which is now standing at this date, (1813.) He 
died March 12th, 1110, aged 61 years, and was the first that 
was buried in the North Burying place in Providence. Mr. 
Samuel Whipple's wife, Mary, died December 14th, 1122, aged 
83 years, and was buried at the same place with her husband; 
also his two daughter, Abigail and Hope who were the first 
and second wives of Eobert Curry, who is buried at their side. 



WILL OP SAMUEL WHIPPLE. 

I, Samuel Whipple, of the town of Providence, in the Colony of 
Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, in Narragansett Bay, in 
New England, being sick and weak of body, but yet (through mercy ) 

*The grave of Samuel Whipple was dug by Epinetus Ballon, when 
a young man at the age of about 18 years. This was told to Mr. 
Dexter Thurber, of Providence, by a man by the name of Ball ou, who 
was then an old man. He said he well recollected of hearing his 
father, (Epinetus Ballou,) say that he dug the first grave at the North 
Burying Place. He went and showed the grave to Mr. Thurber, who 
soon after placed a marble slab, at his own expense, on this grave 
and had engraved thereon to show that he was the first buried at 
the North Burial Place, Providence.
